    I have 6 chickens and 3 ducks. My question-my male pen in and Rouen mates yesterday. Can we eat these eggs or does it mean instant babies? New with ducks. Thank you

    Welcome to BYC.

    It is hard to say if the egg laid yesterday is fertile or not.

    Nothing is instant with incubation. 28 days for dux, I think. I personally, cannot own a dux...

    You can eat a fertile egg, most of us do.
